Caring and alert staff

Very convenient location for traveling around the cities. Friendly staff, great service, very reasonable. A lot of close eating places. The only downside is a small amount of traffic noise from I4 if your room is on the North side. I certainly would use again.

Very nice, comfortable

Clean rooms, great housekeeping service, friendly staff and pleasant. We were there to watch racing at East Bay Winter National Dirt Track. This was easy to get to and track wasn't far away. Not much around for dinning areas, really had to travel a little to do that.

Good place

The most comfortable beds and pillows we had on our trip. The motel does show some signs of its age, but not to the extent that it took away from the experience. The staff was wonderful. The location was convenient to almost everything (except the beach). We were on the highway side. You could hear the traffic, but the nearness of the highway was the reason it was so convenient and it really did not bother us. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for economy and convenience.

Ybor City is close and has every type of restaurant you could be looking for, Interesting history and night life. The Hard Rock Cafe and Casino is one exit the other way.

Nicer than I expected

We got the hotel room to attend WMNF's annual Heat Wave event in Ybor City (which is a blast). Accommodations were perfect.

Dirt track vacation stay

The hotel was close to Eastbay Raceway and we did not have to waste much time reaching the track. It had several nearby restaurants. Our bed and pillows were comfortable. I would have liked an indoor pool and hot tub.
